After 99 long days of entertainment and remarkable novelty, the fourth edition of the Big Brother reality show themed ‘Pepper Dem Gang’ that kicked off with twenty-six housemates on the Sunday of June 30th finally came to a dramatic end on Sunday, October 06, 2019, with Mercy erasing the dark cloud and villain status of the last couple of weeks to claim the cash prize.
